Diago Launches Patchfactory Solderless Guitar PatchCable System -

Diago, the creator of no-nonsense pedalboards andpedal power solutions, has introduced the Patchfactorysolderless guitar patch cable system.

The Patchfactory allows musicians to create their owncustom length patch cables without needing any specialist tools orskills, offering first class connection reliability, the smallestsolderless plug heads, and the most transparent signal transferavailable.

High precision manufacturing of both the plugs and cable meansthat everything fits snugly together, and super fine threads and atightening slot in the plug cap result in strong, reliableconnections.

Patchfactory lets guitarists get their FX pedals closertogether than ever before, saving valuable pedalboard space. Itssolderless plug heads are only 11mm (7/16") in both profile anddiameter - the tiniest money can buy.

To build your own custom DiagoPatchfactory cable, simply cut the cable to your desiredlength (approx. 11mm of cable disappears inside each plug end whenassembled), push the cable firmly into each plug, bend it 90degrees through each plug slot, and screw the cap ends on tightlywith a coin - and you're done!

At 30pF per foot (100pF per metre), the super low-capacitancePatchfactory cable is at the sweet-spot for guitar. Itoffers faithful reproduction of your guitar signal and prevents thetreble roll-off and muddiness often found from poor qualitycable.

Patchfactory PatchDiago designerJames Kitchen said:

"The concept may be familiar, but we've engineeredPatchfactory from the ground up. Everything has been fine-tuned tomake Patchfactory simple to put together, while still beingreliable and great sounding, and all with an exceptionally lowprofile."
